Sarah's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Sarah's Group's story

Sarah's Group is formed by six farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Sarah, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 43 years old and has nine children.

Sarah has been a farmer for 18 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Sarah isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Sarah will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Sarah's Group will purchase one solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of three acres.
